Movies 2018 #1 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

From 2003 to 2011 I wrote at least a few words about every movie I saw. I’m going to try to return to doing that this year. I’m starting off with a little bit of a backlog, so we’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, Star Wars, how about that? I am a lifelong Star Wars fan and can say without irony that seeing Star Wars at the age of 5 in the theater changed my life. That said, I don’t take part, in any way, in organized Star Wars fandom. I read 3 or more Star Wars comics a month (Star Wars, Doctor Aphra*, Poe Dameron and then whatever miniseries are interesting), re-watch the good movies every once in a while and all that. I just don’t go on the internet and read anything written by anyone about any of it. I just live with the franchise on my own terms.

All of that is a preamble to me saying that I really liked The Last Jedi and while I know that there was some controversy or push-back or something about it on the Star Wars internet, I don’t know what it was and… after thinking about it for a few minutes, I realized I didn’t really care to know what it was. I just poked my head up, enjoyed the movie and went back into my fandom-free bubble.

*Doctor Aphra is super great. I ❤️ Doctor Aphra.
